How was your weekend everyone?
Mine was brrrr cold. I tried to start running but then I realized that 10 degrees and running doesn’t work work well for me. So instead of running, I’ve started to listen to the Serial podcast, watching episode of the Good Wife, drinking tea and eating soup. That sounds like Winter, right?
When I used to have my old blog (12 years ago!) I would often document my months and days by posting photos. For months, it’d be a photo a day. For days, it’d be a photo every hour. I won’t show you any of those blog series because they are (very!) embarassing but I thought about bringing them to Brooklyn Farm Girl. Since I take so many pictures (Instagram-aholic) I thought it would be fun to start doing monthly series.
I hope these are fun to view and you get to know me a little bit better with a glimpse behind the scenes with working on blog posts, creating our art for clients and life in NYC. One thing I should tell you right away… I like cats. 🙂
December 1 – We brought home our Christmas tree. In New York there’s no putting it on the roof of your car, you just have to bulk up and carry/push it home. Every year we go and look at the trees and we always want the biggest tree in the back. That’s when I make Matthew move 30 other trees so we can get ours. 🙂
December 2- Brother and Goblin snuggle.
December 2 – Matthew surprised me with a custom made Goblin sweatshirt. I almost cried.
